Rubio says he would oppose Trump declaring a national emergency for border wall

Sen. Marco Rubio said Sunday that he would oppose an effort by President Trump to declare a national emergency to construct a border wall. Calling it a ’terrible idea’, Rubio argued that such a declaration would likely be tied up in the courts, and would set a poor precedent for future administrations.

Dems not wanting to make sure our borders are safe and pushing for more pro-illegal immigrant stuff rather than pro-citizen stuff is worse.

Rubio is a complete disappointment. Not surprised though. He was a complete and total loser during the Gang of Eight debacle with amnesty.

Oh, and letting Dems push Republicans around is a good idea? He needs to sit down and keep his opinion to himself

I don't think it's a good idea either. Declaring national emergency when you don't get your way sets precedent. Imagine of Obama declared national emergency and took military funding for Obamacare. Yes, I want the wall built. I want it bad, but let's not screw with the constitution here.

Rubio argued that an emergency declaration would likely be tied up in the courts, and would set a poor precedent for future administrations. "It doesn't mean that I don't want border security," he said. "I do. I just think that's the wrong way to achieve it.” He’s absolutely correct.

He still thinks he's part of the gang of 8. That plan was defeated and he still doesn't get it. I'd like to see a strong opponent run against him, but not a Democrat. It doesn't have to be a Republican either but a moderate conservative will do.
